JFF Spring Challenge

Hi everyone I'm happy to announce the first Just For Fun challenge. The plan is to make the challenges a monthly event.  For our first challenge the theme is Spring. I encourage you to check out the details and to join in the fun

Here is my inspiration piece.
The background is made from pieces of color tissue paper glued on card. Then Satin Varnish brushed over it. The daffodil is a Just For Fun stamp which was stamped on fabric and then painted with fabric paint and Stickles.  Tip if the fabric paint is too thick so it hides details you can carefully blot it. The paint makes the fabric stiff enough to make it easier to cut. If washable paints and glitter products used stamped images like this would make appliques for projects. The sentiment is printed on copy paper and then my tissue wrapping paper glued over it. Easier than printing directly on tissue wrapping paper and not as stark appearing.

Thank you for stopping by and do come back. I've been busy cleaning,organizing, and decorating my apartment. I hope to soon have some home decor items done and posted.

Wishing you Frugal Happy Crafting till we meet again!


  1. Nice background. The daffodil makes me think of spring. I'd love if you took a peak at my blog as I made a real cool owl card. http://sunflowers-dragonflies.ca/blog

  2. Makes me want to start gardening. Love the way you use so many textures.
